Five of the nation's top women's soccer stars, including the World Cup MVP Carli Lloyd, plan to file a federal complaint Thursday accusing U.S. Soccer of wage discrimination, the New York Times reported.

The athletes, including members of the reigning Women's World Cup champion team, argue they were paid much less than the top men in the sport, according to their attorney, Jeffrey Kessler. The five women also include World Cup goalie Hope Solo, co-captain Becky Sauerbrunn, forward Alex Morgan and midfielder Megan Rapinoe.

The U.S. women's team won the 2015 World Cup with a commanding performance over Japan.

“We are disappointed about this action. We have been a world leader in women’s soccer and are proud of the commitment we have made to building the women’s game in the United States over

You're right, supply and demand. If there was more of a market, they'd get paid more.

 

That being said, our women's national team is probably the most popular female sports team in the country. I wouldn't be surprised if they were underpaid

 

 

On the other hand... Alex Morgan. I'm on her side. For reasons

Reasons. Good reasons. Very good reasons in fact. Reasons so good you wouldn't believe me if I told you. Trust me when I say I have reasons because I've had so many reasons in the past, I'm the greatest at reasons.

 

On OP, supply and demand, yes. People care less about women's sport by virtue of it being women. It's the one area that genders won't really be equal, physical excellence. Of course plenty of women will be better then most men at some things, but the floor, ceiling and average of men will just be better when it comes to athleticism, and people want to watch the best.

correct me if i'm wrong, but I thought womens soccer was infact watched more than the men. As it kind of should be since they don't suck and the men do.

I don't think that's true.

 

Maybe they had a more highly watched game in their World Cup than the men?

I'm not sure what you think you're doing, but you aren't doing it.

 

 

No need to overreact...
